I'm building up an old-school '99 FSR DH Max Backbone frame that I recently acquired thanks to a fellow member here on MTBR and i've run into a bit of a snag. The frame didn't come with the rearmost cable guide for the front derailleur. It sits right under the rear suspension linkage and redirects the front D cable downward to the derailleur.
Here's a pic of the piece i'm talking about:
I tried to see if a modified V-brake noodle would work, but they don't have that extra little lip to prevent the noodle from just pulling through the frame-mounted part of the cable guide. I've also searched most of the online vendors' websites, but no one seems to have anything similar. I'm assuming that that piece may be frame specific?
So, anyone out there by chance have one of these laying around taking up space in their toolbox from an old bike, or know where I might be able to find one? Thanks in advance...
